    Japanese language courses/schools for expats

    Just wondering if anyone knows of any Japanese language schools and/or courses in HK that are offered for expats (i.e. meaning the teaching language is English)

    I know of only one: The Japan Society of HK. Unfortunately, they only offer courses taught in Cantonese, which I am still learning as well. When I called them to inquire about information, they told me that the lessons would be pretty hard to understand if my Cantonese is not up to par.

    Or does anyone have any first hand knowledge as to whether any of the universities offer evening language courses for "non-degree" seeking people? (Although I'm sure the tuition would be pretty high....)

    Of course, my preference would be to find a private tutor, but I just want to check out the pedagogical/cost benefits of actually taking a course.

    Any advice or input would be greatly appreciated.
